--- Comment #5 from Kubilay Kocak <koobs_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
Review items:

- Match COMMENT to upstream titl,e modulo portlint needs. In this case: "Cython
wrapping of the C++ Cap'n Proto library"

- Package installs files into non Python version specific (shared) locations,
port needs to be made concurrent (installation) safe using
USE_PYTHON=concurrent [1]

- Upstream says it wants a C++14 compiler, probably worth using
USES=compiler:<lang> here. [2]

- Upstream mentions needing special compiler args for 32-bit, does this also
apply to us? [3]

- Using system (ports) LIB_DEPENDS is preferable, by default this uses the
bundled libpcap code. Use --force-system-libcapnp" added to

- Add TEST_DEPENDS and (do-)test target when a package ships a test suite. In
this case TEST_DEPENDS=pytest and do-test: cd ${WRKSRC} && ${PYTHON_CMD} -m
pytest -v -rs -o addopts= should get it to run (please confirm QA)

[1] "console_scripts": ["capnpc-cython = capnp._gen:main"]
[2]  C++14 supported compiler 
[3] 32-bit Linux requires that capnproto be compiled with -fPIC. This is
usually set correctly unless you are compiling canproto yourself. This is also
[4] setup.py: force_system_libcapnp = "--force-system-libcapnp" in sys.argv
